Needs Improvement

24x7 security is the one thing that really made me gravitate to this place - but recently I was locked out of the apartment because of a glitch in the fob in the middle of the night, only to find that no one was present at the concierge to be able to assist. I was told later that the person on duty for that time never showed up for their shift. Repair and maintenance has been great but the management is hardly approachable. While I understand amenities might take time, basic facilities like bike parking can be provided for easily but do not exist.

love the apartment, management ruins it

I have lived here for under a year, and will be moving as soon as possible. My apartment is amazing and wonderful, but the manager is rude to tenants and is possibly violating lease agreements.

Price is decent, quality bad

New management is very rude and not understanding. Bumped up the price of living here without any extra perks. And quality if anything has gotten a bit worse.

My apartment is a sauna

The AC is consistently broken rendering my room to be 85+ degrees. I submit maintenance requests and get zero updates. Survival shouldn't be my primary concern in an apartment that I pay a lot of money for.
